EM-1 from Korea, UK import duty
6 months ago

I'm a long time M43 user, considering buying an EM-1 from Ebay.

The best pricing I've found is £680 from 102_store based in South Korea.

This is far cheaper than the UK pricing which is around £1,100 perhaps £1,000 if I really hunt around.

Does anyone have experience of purchasing from Asia shipping into UK and which shipper and what duties were you charged if any?

My only experience was buying a Markins ball head, from Korea - I can't recall the shipper but I was charged duty although it was fairly low and didn't seem to have any relationship with the price paid! I know I should be paying 20% VAT....

Many thanks!
